Whaattttt!
« on: August 29, 2018, 10:44:59 AM »
Hey Guys,
I know we've seen ridiculous prices in the past, but this guy takes first prize.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/A-THR-PN-A2001425/152971625407?hash=item239dd1c3bf:g:4y0AAOSwVWFaxS6Q

$885.00 for a switch, have a look there's more!!!!

Joe.

OK be nice.    ;D

This guy sells into the simulator repair market space, not so much to us home builders.  He is also the guy I am trying to buy the 737-300 EIS gauge set from and wants $1,600 for it. He knows there are no 300s out there anymore. I told him what I would offer and he just said flat out no.

Real parts do not always equate high price
As Jim said, the economic value is based on many factors.

Should be able to find at least one for a decent price here I think?

Great idea, but how do you find anything without a Boeing part no.?

The link above has the P/N already in it for you :)

You don't really need a Boeing P/N. In fact, it's a lot easier to find parts with the Manufacturer P/N e.g. the MCP used on the NG has Boeing P/N S241A100-242, which returns only 2-3 results, but it has Manufacturer P/N 822-1567-102, which returns 20+ results.

Thank you so much - how are you finding part numbers just out of curiosity?

I got most of my P/Ns from either searching descriptions, listings, or even down right educated guessing...hehe
